Radiation check: CNET publishes a comparative list of the "specific absorption rate" of cellphones; that is, the amount of radiofrequency energy that is emitted and absorbed by your body. While they point out they're not making claims about phone safety, pro or con, it's a little freaky considering how many SARs are coursing in during a phonecall. Nokia, my brand but not my model, leads the list with 7 of the top 10 radiation-emitting phones, while the least sperm-fryingest phone is the Siemens S40 (aptly named, as it turns out). For more on the health effects of cellphones, read this entry at How Stuff Works. (Via Digg.)
